Happy Monday my lovelies! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! I had a nice – mostly – relaxing weekend. Even though I am not 100% yet, I am at least feeling a little better so it feels like a win to me! What did you get up to?
One thing I got up to was playing with my Zoya PixieDusts. I have been dying to get my hands on these for what feels like forever. I am just glad to finally have them. I don’t even think they need much of an explanation so let’s just get to it shall we 😉
Zoya – Dahlia
Dahlia is a black polish packed with a fine silver glitter. This matte glitter dries to a textured, almost sugary, finish. I love this so much. The photo actually does no justice because it sparkles so much more. The texture is also very nice. It’s a fine rough texture. I used two coats here with no topcoat. Application is a dream. These also dried fairly quickly which is always a bonus. Out of all my bottles of PixieDust, this one also seem to be a little less textured than any of the others. It is still textured though. You can of course add a topcoat to make this smooth. Adding a topcoat gives the polish a lot of depth but beware, you will need at least two coats of topcoat because this polish is thirsty!! Here is Dahlia with some topcoat.
See how the topcoat changes this beauty? The black becomes a true black and the silver glitter gives it tons of depth. I love the versatility of these polishes. You get two gorgeous looks from one polish.
Zoya – Chyna
Chyna is a gorgeous red with red glitter. Of course it also dries to the textured finish like Dahlia. This is two coats. I found Chyna to be the most opaque of all the PixieDusts I have. Again, I think in real life this polish is just amazing. It sparkles so much and I can not stop staring at my nails while wearing this. It is almost my very favourite. It’s deep and rich and sparkly. Add a topcoat you are blown away.
Topcoat adds so much depth to this gorgeous polish. You don’t need me to tell you. Just look at that beauty!
Zoya – Godiva
This is two coats of Godiva. I am so in love with this polish. I find this shade to be so elegant and makes me feel like a fairy princess or something. It’s so gorgeous! It sparkles like a sugar cube and the colour will go with absolutely everything! I die! The only down side is that adding a topcoat doesn’t have as big an effect as with the others.
It’s still beautiful though isn’t it! Goodness me.
I tried to do a little something to incorporate all 3 these polishes. I did a sponged ombre with Dahlia and Chyna and once that was dry I added a big dot of Godiva with my dotting tool. I did this close to the cuticle and I wanted it to look a little stud like.
So to wrap up, all of these polishes blew my mind! Formula is great. They applied easily and they wear really well. I love the texture of these textured polishes. I love that it has glitter but fine, micro glitter that almost looks like those sugared sweets. The colours are gorgeous and I wish I could get the other three colours as well. I am so in love with these polishes. Also, I had no problems removing these polishes either. I did not have to use the foil method to remove them. It might just be me and how I take polish off in general. I wet the cotton round with remover and then hold it on top of my finger and the polish and pressing down until the colour starts to appear on the others side. Then I just wipe off. With these I had to wipe a few extra times but that was it.
What do you think of the Zoya PixieDusts? Have you tried them? Are they something you are looking forward to trying? Which colour is your favourite?
Thanks for reading!
